'Our little road trip' was how Voice of Ireland host Kathryn Thomas described it.

But whatever it was, viewers loved it.

Voice of Ireland mentors Kian Egan, Bressie, Una Foden and Rachel Stevens, along with hosts Kathryn Thomas and Eoghan McDermott proved they were game for a laugh.

The six dressed up in an array of different costumes and mimed and danced to a number of different songs while 'travelling' in a car in a send-up aired before the final of the series was broadcast tongiht.

The lads kicked it off with 'Trust Me I'm a Doctor' while wearing fetching blue scrubs. S Club 7's 'Reach for the Stars' was next with Bressie sporting a little red dress and wig while Kian and Eoghan danced enthusiastically in front of him.

The girls were next up, dressed in all white suits and Trilby hats as they mimed and danced along to Westlife's 'Little World of our Own' before breaking into a Saturdays number.

The lads returned with a hilarious rendition of 'Gangnam Style' - each sporting black suits and shades and performing an impeccably timed dance routine.

The girls were next dressed as Sia - Kathryn was particularly impressive in this one.

The lads knocked it out of the park though with Beyonce's 'Put A Ring On It' - they were dressed in brown wigs, leotards and had an impeccably timed routine that Queen Bey would have been proud of. They were up soon after with 'Thriller' with Bressie sporting a wig and red leather jacket.

Kathryn upped the ante with the girls' version of Madonna's 'Like A Prayer' - the three female mentors were dressed as Madonna at various stages of her career. Una looked particularly fetching in her gold cone corset.

Both sides gave a rendition of of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' - the famous section that featured in nineties film 'Wayne's World'.

Una then finished it off by saying 'I know what we're singing tonight' which led to much laughter among the girls.

It then cut to the live final with the four mentors singing 'Should I stay or Should I Go' by The Clash.

Fans of the show loved the special trailer.

And in terms of performance, we think the boys just about shaded it over the girls.
